    My cousin sold his residential property and the payment received is utilised for liquidation of HBL availed to purchase his other residential property which his is now residing. Whether he has to pay the capital gains tax of 20 % on the sale of property?

    If the property in which he is residing for was purchased max 1 year before or max 2 years after the sale of the old property - then he can claim capital gains exemption.
